In this mythic time of the Good War, everyone was united: there were no racial or gender tensions, no class conflicts. Things worked better, from kitchen gadgets to public schools. Families were well adjusted; kids read a lot and respected their elders; parents didn’t divorce. (The Best War Ever, xiii) In The Best War Ever Michael C.C. Adams exposes the truths behind this statement and shows us just how distorted America’s view of the war really was. He’ll provide us with facts, showing that Hollywood and government propaganda contributed to how disconnected Americans on the home front were from the war. Proving that although America was a dominating and necessary force in World War II, the picture most Americans paint of the time was obstructed. Adams will construct a more realistic view; having us considering the realities behind the war and leaving us thinking about the lasting effects World War II left on today’s America. Adams states: War is, by definition, destruction. It can have sinister charm. (The Best War Ever, 92)
